We were taken about 10 km away to Lavacolla where we started our journey. We get som suggestions fron the guide Elena and walk to Joy Hill. There the fog was down and we could see the Santiago Cathedral. Elena met us there explained few interesting stories. And we waled to Santiago further. All it took 4 hours including vidit to St James (sw Jakub in polih) grave in the cathedral

Unique and unforgettable experience. Thank ELENA for helping us with all kinds of explanations, kindness and sympathy along the way. Beautiful landscapes. 100% recommendable. Thank you very much.
